Peanut Butter Base
Place the peanuts in your food processor and pulse until broken down.
Add a tablespoon of coconut oil and then continue to process until a smooth butter is formed.
Add the maple syrup and sea salt, and process until everything is well incorporated.
Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix everything with a fork until well incorporated.
If the chocolate isn't perfectly smooth, then continue to adjust your proportions until just right.
Pour the peanut butter into little cups and then place in the freezer to set.
Prepare the chocolate coating.
Once the chocolate is ready, pour over the peanut butter.
Place back in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
Move to the fridge until you are ready to eat.
Top with sea salt and/or peanuts if you’d like.
- Homemade Raw Peanut Butter Substitute: You can easily substitute your favorite store-bought peanut butter for the homemade raw peanut butter I use in this recipe. Just check the label and make sure the only ingredients listed are roasted peanuts.
- Chocolate Coating Consistency: When mixing the chocolate coating, you may need to adjust the ingredient proportions to find the perfect consistency. I started with a couple tablespoons each of coconut oil and maple syrup and added a bit more of each until I reached a smooth consistency.
